This idea is to update naming in the menu's so it is clear what the user can select for checking out cad objects from any part of the UI and it should be consistent. Many solutions to this issue. Either rename the menu pick so it is clear or hide the option if it is not applicable to the object being selected. PTC's workaround from case C13196201 is to customize Windchill to change the name in the menu which means we need to manage it in every upgrade going forward. We are 100% confident that every customer checking out files from Windchill has unsatisfied user's because check out function is not consistent across the UI between Windchill and Workspaces.
FAILURE MODE - RMB Menu and select Check Out from search results table - You get the error as shown in Second window. The user has a 50/50 chance of making the right selection here.
Another area in Windchill where the user has a 50/50% of getting the above error.
Below shows the functions behind the names of the menu...you can see that the same name has different functions. This causes confusion for the user.
